>>Has anyone out there heard of and or used this new product called Hatchrite? It claims that no mixing of water is needed and guarntees eggs remain hydrated without adding water through out incubation. Sounds almost too good to be true. The manufacturer recommends them for chondro eggs since they stay dry. Anyone with any experience?
>>I lost 13 eggs last season from the eggs getting wet from condensation and i dont want to repeat that again

In my experience with this medium, I would not recommend it for any reptile eggs as is. You MUST add water for proper hydration. If not, you will experience very dry eggs with underweight hatchlings or nothing at all. IMHO, it is no different that regular pearlite.
